Additional Information: 

The case appears to be a 1952 (L2) Berkshire or Air King, but the movement is an 11AF (1959-67) stamped L9. The crown is not stamped. The face doesn't match other Berkshires on the site, having additional concentric rings. Higher resolution pics at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/eu39pn6h86298xo/c_djAkTJCj?lst

Despite the scratches which show on camera, it looks great to the naked eye, and is easily my favourite watch.

Sweet "Berkshire" sir...  I think we go with the case.  The movement/dial look to be from a late 50's His Excellency model.

Looks good IMO.... though not as simplistic in it's execution.

I would concur with Plains on this one.

Non-conforming due to the mix-match of the dial, movement and case.
Interesting combination though.

I guess I'd have to vote Non Conforming as well. It is an interesting combination, I rather fancy it but I don't think we can label it a Berkshire.

I agree w/ non-conforming to the ads and info for Berkshire.  Nice combo though.
